Prices also were seen jumping in Minneapolis, St. Louis, and other outlying areas in the Midwest/Great Lakes. This seems limited to this geographic area.The increases in Indiana started Tuesday, while Michigan and Ohio saw the large jumps yesterday. While Tuesday's hike in Indiana was baffling, a jump in gasoline spot prices and wholesale prices Tuesday night led us to believe that Ohio and Michigan would see a jump Wednesday, and not surprisingly, they did.The surprise was the prices that gasoline jumped to- $3.99 in Ohio, which typically sees prices spike 5-10c/gal under what prices in Michigan and Indiana rise to.

Yeah, um, it's called living in a GREEDway/Speedway controlled state. We see REGULAR spikes of 20-50 cents at a time. Spike up and feather back down.

Here in Illinois we have jumped from $3.59 to $3.79 depending on your location but that's about the average as of today's date.

Well, GREEDway/Speedway's last spike(late last week) failed miserably. They gave up after 3 states(instead of all 6). Looks like other brands showed a little backbone this time. Happens occasionally. GREEDway tried to get everyone to jump to $3.999, again, last week. Well, I bought gas for $3.639 last night.
